    One of the main concerns in the design of networked control systems (NCS’s) is the inherent delays induced by the networking infrastructure. Rather than considering delays as a threat, delays may be considered as an ...
  • Developing professional skills at tertiary level: A model to integrate competencies across the curriculum 

    Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; Soler Cervera, Antonia; López Álvarez, David; Martín Escofet, Carme; Ageno Pulido, Alicia; Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Cabré Garcia, José M.; Cobo Valeri, Erik; Farré Cirera, Rafael; García Almiñana, Jordi; Marès Martí, Pere (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report

    In the context of the European Higher Education Area, curriculum design needs to be based on the defined competencies of each degree programs, including both domain specific and professional competencies. In this educational ...
  • LTI ODE-valued neural networks 

    Velasco García, Manel; Martín Rull, Enric Xavier; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Martí Colom, Pau (2014-05)
    Article

    Reactive power control methods have been proven to be a successful technique for maintaining voltages of photovoltaic (PV) distributed generators (DG) within the admissible limits without enforcing to reduce the production ...
  • De la farola urbana hacia un elemento urbano multifuncional 

    Ruiz, Fèlix; Farré, Josep; Martí Colom, Pau; Martínez Antúnez, Nora Isabel; Llorens Garcia, Ariadna (2014-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Se està produciendo un cambio de paradigma, un cambio de concepto de la farola tradicional, transformándose en otra cosa diferente, en el nodo urbano. Esto supone un nuevo paso en la línea de las smart cities. Los autores ...
  • Holistic indices for productivity control assessment, applied to the comparative analysis of PID and fuzzy controllers within an Isasmelt furnace 

    Ojeda Sarmiento, Juan Manuel; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª; Griful Ponsati, Eulàlia (2014-02-01)
    Article

  • An alternative discrete-time model for networked control systems with time delay less than the sampling period 

    Torres Guerrero, Gina; Velasco García, Manel; Martí Colom, Pau; Martín Rull, Enric Xavier; Fuertes Armengol, José Mª (2013)
    Conference lecture
